Laguardia is about three blocks long and one block wide, in modern-city terms, so if you're here you'll walk around and if you walk around you'll find yourself in this square. Perfect place to stop for tapas and a glass of wine.

Nice the three dancing puppets at noon, but it is a bit simplistic and I wouldn't specifically plan to go there if you weren't already in Laguardia around that time

Sat outside our hotel and ate dinner in the square. Totally locals and almost not tourists. A real Spanish small village experience. I suggest you go when the clock tower rings. There are dancing figurines at 5, 8. and 10 pm. All the locals were...More

When the musicians are playing, the square comes alive with music, dancing, and happy crowds! But this is a wonderful place to visit anytime - it is full of history and charm! Wonderful to walk through the streets of Laguardia!
